G              D
He had white horses
G                   D
And ladies by the score
G                   D
All were dressed in satin
G                   D
And waiting by the door


Chorus:
Am             G           D    [Dsus4  D]
Oooh, What a lucky man he was

Oooh, What a lucky man he was


G                 D
White lace and feathers
G                 D
They made up his bed
G                 D
A gold covered mattress
G                 D
On which he was laid


Chorus

G                 D
He went to fight wars
G                       D
For his country and his king
G                      D
Of his honor and his glory
G                 D
The people would sing


Chorus


G                D
A bullet had found him
G                    D
His blood ran as he died
G                D
No money could save him
G                      D
So he laid down and he died

Chorus

Lucky Man

"Lucky Man" is a song by the English progressive rock super group Emerson, Lake & Palmer, from the group's 1970 self-titled debut album. Written by Greg Lake when he was 12 years old and recorded by the trio using improvised arrangements, the song contains one of rock music's earliest instances of a Moog synthesizer solo. "Lucky Man" was released as a single in 1970 and reached the top 20 in the Netherlands. The song also charted in the United States and Canada. The single was re-released in 1973 and charted again in the U.S. and Canada.
